Actually, I figured it out.
In fact, once I got the locked brummel splice, I had the SRL and the whoopies done in no time. It all came together nicely.
Instead of a fid or needel to pull, I used a folded wire I saw from one of the photo tutorials, and it all happened real quick. Easy as pie. I missed my target, but not by much. I have a 96"-110" range. Easy to get down, and simple to adjust!
